Which Bluewater ketch

My wife wants to buy a ketch (yes my wife) for us to cruise to who knows where in our early retirement. She has seen many but sofar not found one she likes. This has currently changed, at least on paper, there are now three she feels will do the job: Alden Dolphin 47 (1974), CT49 (1983) and Roberts 50 (1984), all are GRP. All appear in good condition and similarly equiped plus upgrades we consider necessary run to about the same overall cost.

The problem is that two of the boats require international travel with one being on the other side of the world. Therefore, any opinions would be gratefully received before we go rushing off. Thanks.
